My main collecting interest has always been field gear and small personal items. These things always breathe the period since they are the items the regular soldier had to do with. I specialize in these items and strive to offer nice and interesting items.
The items offered here are all guaranteed original and unaltered period pieces produced before May 1945 unless stated otherwise.

  • Wehrmacht issue hand operated air raid siren


    Unissued Wehrmacht issued hand cranked air raid siren. Standard vehicle item that is extremely scarce to obtain in complete or working condition. This is the first one I’ve ever found in this complete condition. The sirens comes with the original cloth dustcover, the sling AND the belt loop. The belt loop is only the second one I’ve ever seen. The original paint finish on the zink/aluminum based hardware still retains up to 95%. Together with the completeness I’d say it is in unissued condition. The piece is nicely dated 1940 and is maker marked JURK. Incredibly scarce item that would nicely compliment any equipment or vehicle collection!

  • Stunning named and unit marked NS66 M35 double decal Heer combat helmet with 1935 Schuberth liner


    Exceptional named and early pre war 1935 dated M35 double decal Heer helmet marked NS66 indicating production by Vereinigte Deutsche Nikelwerke, Schwerte. The skirt of the helmet is bears the lot number E10 which is one of the lowest lot numbers I’ve encountered. The non-reinforced early pattern Schuberth liner is dated 1935 on the band ánd the round marking on the leather. The helmet retains its originally attached liner and chinstrap marked G. Schiele Loburg 1937. The rim on the helmet is the typical early production with the hand rolled rim. The rear skirt of the shell retains multiple unit markings. One being 11./J.R.10 indicating 11. Kompanie Infanterie Regiment 10. The other marking is also named to Oberschütze Panitz 5./J.R.101. Both these units took part of the Polenfeldzug in 1939 and the Westfeldzug in 1940. The helmets exterior bears two Heer decals with the national three-color partially period removed as ordered in 1940. The helmet retains up to 90% of its original factory paint.

    The helmet was recently recovered in household clearance in the area of Dresden which perfectly matches the unit marking inside the skirt. Infanterie regiment 10 was renamed into Infanterie Regiment Dresden in 1935. The helmet has never been in a collection before – very hard to find a real early war combat helmet like this one which both survived the Polenfeldzug in 1939 and the Westfeldzug in 1940! A perfect helmet for a 1940 combat mannequin, this helmet is really a nice textbook example of a pre war combat helmet, this helmet has it all!
